[applause] but now, now, some people say, they say well, that's not fair. because it doesn't hurt the guy who made 10 billion dollars as much as the guy who made 10. where does it say you have to hurt the guy. >> megyn: and now brad, a former deputy assistant to president george w. bush and dan, the president of gotham ghost writers. an interesting question posed by miss crowly whether it was disrespectful and some on the panel, say it was disrespectful for the doctor to speak this way before the president at the national prayer breakfast. dan, your thoughts? >> i teach a class at nyu and the first thing i tell my students he when you're talking about judging ethical behavior context is the most important thing. if dr. karr son said this at rnc convention at the heritage foundatio
their religion is the reason they didn't bake the couple's cake. >> he believes in god, and he full heartedly does it not believe in same-sex marriage. he shouldn't have to bake a cake for. that he should be able to freely deny them without all this backlash. >> reporter: despite the protest outside, sweet cakes was open for business. supportive customers lined up out the door. >> i appreciate the fact that they're standing up for what they believe in. i want to show them support since demonstrators are not showing support. >> reporter: the owners say the backlash has been harsh but they are standing by their decision. >> it's good to know even though everybody seems to think that portland and the surrounding area is so liberal that there really is some conservative christians out there that want to get their voices heard. >> still ahead, controversy ahead of two confirmations as some lawmakers are demanding answers from president obama's picks for cia director and defense secretary regarding the attack in benghazi, libya. >>> plus, we are two days away from president obama's state of the uni
the relationship between reason and faith and the place of religion in a secular world. i think the truth, judy, is all of of those things have validity. all of them add up to the full picture of a pope who had his strengths and his weaknesses. i think will undoubtedly be remembered for both. >> woodruff: monsignor hilgartner all of that plays into the question of what role will he play in the selection of his successor? he won't have a vote but he selected more than half of the cardinals who will be doing the picking. >> he has selected more than half. there was a question as to whether or not he would participate. and the holy sea clarified this morning in the middle of all the other news that he would not participate. but his influence is clear. i think even his statement this morning about recognizing that there are major things that the church needs to address and do that he doesn't feel that he has the stamina to be able to accomplish really sets the stage for the cardinals when they gather to begin to look at and discuss and reflect on what those issues are. as they then move into the co
. >> thank you. with us now is author david van beema, he spent more than a decade as the chief religion writer for "time" magazine and joins us now. david, good morning. >> good morning. >> this is the first pope to resign in six centuries. this is incredibly unusual. were you shocked when you heard the news? >> i was shocked at the timing. but i was not shocked he had resigned. he had already written from time to time it was appropriate for a pope to resign. >> he had written that in his 2010 book "light of the world," where if a pope realizes they are no longer physically able it would be their obligation to resign. what does this mean for his legacy? >> the papacy which is relatively short, the combination of that and the sex abuse scandal, probably means we'll see him in 50 years or something like that as the consolidation of the conservative movement of the papacy. he will be seen as the second part of the john paul ii papacy rather than as somebody who made a huge mark of his own, at least not in terms of the wider world. >> beyond those efforts, was he tryin
the history of biblical religion from "a" to "z." who never wanted to be an executive, a manager, who always thought of himself primarily as a scholar. but who somehow could translate all of that learning into beautiful simplicities about god's love for the world and for god's people. >> and, george, even as we honor the service of this pope, we look forward to the election of a new pope. and tell us about this process. i mean, is this a sort of thing where, for lack of a better term, there are front-runners? >> there will be an enormous amount of ink spilled in the italian press over the next two weeks about front-runners. most of that would be silly. there are a number of cardinals who fit what would seem to me to be the profile. first of all, a man in full physical vigor. that suggests to me someone perhaps under 70. someone who w the linguistic skills to speak to the church in italian obviously, he's the bishop of rome but also in english, spanish, et cetera. i think above all, a pope who can be peter again, who can be an evangelist, who can be a missionary, who can make the church's pro
